25 Days of Christmas Tags and Lil' Inker Designs

Hello and welcome to the Lil' Inker Designs Blog today!!! I'm Laura, the owner of Lil' Inker Designs and I'm here posting for the fabulous and fun 25 Days of Christmas Tags Hop!!! YAY!!!!!
I am OBSESSED with making tags so this hop really gives me a thrill!!!! HA!!

As I mentioned I'm the owner of Lil' Inker Designs - a small but crafty home based business since 2010. We have a super duper collection of clear photopolymer stamps and metal dies all in the freshest designs. 

If you haven't visited us before I hope you'll check out our store and if you're a tag-making-lover like I am you'll be psyched at all the different options we have for you.

I'd love to share some projects I made for you today! Are you ready?

I'm still a lover of the "shaker" both in card and tag form so I gave one a whirl for this hop today!


I started with our Anytime Tags Dies  and then die cut it with our Oh My Ornaments Dies to create the shaker window which I backed with some pretty Winter themed paper. The tiny greeting perfect for this tag is from our Holly Jolly Stamp Set. This set has been around since we first started out. It's a WINNER for any crafter's collection. The greetings are sweet and petite!

Here's a closer look at the items from Lil' Inker Designs used to create this fun tag.






I was in a coloring mood so I decided to try my hand at making a non-holiday stamp set into one perfect for it! Here I started by stamping and die cutting this cute image from our Cat Treats Stamp Set. This image is actually of the cats taking a selfie. So I cut out the phone image and replaced it with a coffee mug from another image in the same set. To give this more of a Christmas feel I just colored the clothing in reds and greens. Then, I took the hat of my Santa from our Moody Santa Stamps and trimmed it to fit on the girl kitty's head.

Here is a look at some of the other items from our line used to make this tag.



You need this tag set in your life! I'm obsessed!                      Used to create the "snow" on the ground



























         Used for the hat on kitty's head                             Used for the snowflake on the small, black tag.



We recently had a holiday release in our store so since we're on the subject of tags I thought I'd share some tags that I love. Have you ever just made something that you end up being a big fan of? Hahahah!!!! Well, I ended up being a fan of how these turned out. I hope you like them too!



These were made with our Rowdy Reindeer Stamps and Die. For more details on the additional supplies used to make these cuties CLICK HERE!!

Lots of the Lil' Inker Design Team Members are participating in today's hop. I hope you'll hop along to see all of their inspiring creations!!!

Have a fun time hoping and don't forget about our terrific prize!!

Thank you so much for joining me today!! If you're new to LID welcome and if you're a long time supporter or fan, it was great having you here again today!!


Love,

  1. I was excited to see your tags on the 25 Days of Christmas Tags for day 6. I am expecting your set Cat Treats in the mail this week...so I know which tag will be my inspiration. ;) On your Merry and Bright tag, I especially like how you topped it off....with the twill, hemp twine and round black metal tag. Beautiful work!!!!

  2. Thank you for being a sponsor of Tracy's tag series. I have followed this for several years and get some fabulous ideas!! I adore your shaker tag!! I have the anytime tags but not the ornament dies so I am going to look through my stash and see what else I can come up with to try and make something similar. As you know, I love Lil' Inkers - your quality is outstanding and you have a fabulous team that inspires me with each release!!!

  8. Oh my goodness Laura, these are all such adorable tags! I too am a HUGE tag fiend (for ALL occasions) and also a shaker lover and to have both in one...ALL the better! Love all of your tag dies, they are simply adorable. Being a (young-ish) grandma with no income, I have had to be very creative in my tag making. I am only beginning to get a few actual tag dies now and it is awesome to see what is available. Thanks for sharing your amazing tags, ideas and products. ♥ them all!

    Having the die cuts make it so much easier
    and faster to make tags.

  13. Wonder tags, Laura. I love cats, so I'm naturally drawn to your cute cat tag, but I'm a real sucker for shakers too. Glad I don't have to pick a favorite because both are brilliant.

  22. Love the shaker tag but I gotta tell you that I really love the Rowdy Reindeer tags. The sentiment about the filthy animal cracks me up and reminds me of the movie "Home Alone". Love it. [Bunny]
